Hall of Fame

The NCACC Hall of Fame inducted its first class in 2011. Each year, the NCACC’s Executive Committee will bring forth new honorees to include in the Hall of Fame.

To be eligible, individuals must have been active within the NCACC, including service as a member of the Board of Directors. Individuals must also have made significant contributions to county government at either the state or national levels, such as a leadership role with the National Association of Counties (NACo) or service in a higher office.
